Everything was fantastic, large room, nicely decked out, spotless, great location. Fantastic value - about half the price of some not-nearly-as-nice hotels in Dublin. Also included breakfast. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here one night while on a small group tour. My room was clean with a good functional bathroom. It was spacious, the tv worked and they offered face cloths (most places in Europe don't). The breakfast was excellent and the service very good. The hotel is well situated for exploring the charming town of Kilkenny.Recommended.

Management response:

Dear Una I am pleased that you had a very good stay overall and sorry that you had two minor problems. It was fair to reduce your rate as the full offer of the superior room wasn’t provided. We are located in a very good area in a central location and luckily surrounded by well run bars and restaurants. The... More

This hotel is No1 in Kilkenny and it deserves it's top ranking. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff both welcoming and informative. They gave us ideas of great places to eat (make sure you try the Cafe Sol... Just a sort walk away) and also 'must see' sights in the area. free wifi is always a bonus.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have discovered the Pembroke Hotel, Kilkenny’s favourite boutique hotel, a relaxed oasis in the heart of the old city quarter. The 4 Star Pembroke Hotel is situated on Patrick Street, Kilkenny’s most exclusive street right in the centre of a city that is rich with medieval heritage and alive with a vibrant arts culture. With 74 comfortable, spacious, airy bedrooms, its Stathams Bar and Stathams Restaurant and a dedicated business centre, the Pembroke Hotel offers a peaceful welcoming charm with quiet luxury and comfort at its core. You will feel truly comfortable in this warm and friendly hotel where you are assured of a restful sleep in the heart of the city. Surrounded by Kilkenny’s most famous landmarks including Kilkenny Castle, Butler House and Gardens and the National Craft Gallery it is fitting that we take our name from the Earl of Pembroke for whom Kilkenny castle was built. Creativity flows through everything we do at the Pembroke Hotel, from our modern interior to our fresh imaginative food, so it is natural for us as a patron of the Butler Gallery to showcase a selection from their permanent collection. Whether your visit is for business, pleasure or celebration, we look forward to warmly welcoming you and to providing you with our thoughtful, naturally attentive and caring service in a relaxed atmosphere where you will feel safe and cared for. Quite simply – we are committed to looking after our guests. ... more   less
